Jose Mourinho takes his Manchester United side today on the hunt for his fourth EFL Cup victory.
The United manager is an admirer of the cup and claimed it three times at Chelsea. A win would deliver his first piece of silverware since his installation as manager last summer.
His side beat Northampton, Manchester City, West Ham and Hull City to reach this stage and now face a Southampton side that has been well-organised and disciplined in reaching the final.

Wayne Rooney and Michael Carrick are available for the game today, but both are unlikely to start with Mourinho opting to play what he considered his strongest XI.
Henrikh Mkhitaryan will be absent for Manchester United after sustaining an injury in the Europa League game against St Etienne in mid-week.
United captain Rooney missed the mid-week Europa League trip but has returned to fitness. He is confirmed in the squad but will likely start on the bench.
Phil Jones is a doubt due to a foot issue, but Ander Herrera returns to the match-day squad and should start alongside Paul Pogba in midfield.
